Episode #154 – Ghosts of Virtanen

The 2017 NHL Draft has come and gone, as has a dull and awkward 2017 NHL Awards and the Vancouver Canucks did some solid work on draft day!

Geeta, P Mac and Ryan are with you this week to discuss the awkward NHL Awards show and how the Hart Trophy presentation was overshadowed by Marc-Andre Fleury being selected by Vegas.

They discuss the Canucks’ 5th overall pick, Elias Pettersson, his impact in Sweden playing along side Canucks’ prospect Jonathan Dahlen and the much different approach the Canucks organization has taken to drafting players this years compared to years past. Did they learn a thing or two from the Virtanen draft? Have they decided to be geared more towards the skilled side of the game?

They also discuss the Penguins trading for Ryan Reaves on draft day, the ongoing problems and turnover in Arizona and the reunion tour being organized in Chicago. Saad, maybe Sharp, hell, what’s Jeremy Roenick upto these days?

Enjoy!

Episode #153 – Long Road To Drouin

The exposed lists are here. Fans get a good look at who’s available to the Vegas Golden Knights and which players have been given up on!

Full bench at Geeta’s palatial estate this week. Dave, P Mac, Geeta and Ryan discuss the Canucks’ exposed list… not the most desirable group of guys. They discuss Erik Gudbranson’s new reasonable bridge deal and what he could potentially do at 100% next season.

They discuss Shane Doan leaving the Winnipeg/Phoenix/Arizona Jets/Coyotes, the only organization he’s ever played for. Will he retire a Coyote? Or test the open market and try and get a Stanley Cup? For a player that’s been only loyal to the Coyotes, it seems unfair to not resign him at this point of his career.

The gang also talks about the big Jonathan Drouin trade to Montreal. They discuss his rocky time in Tampa Bay and being talked about on the podcast, and how much of an impact he can and will have in Montreal once he starts playing.

Finally, the gang discusses Mike Smith heading to Calgary, which PON member would be exposed in a podcast expansion draft and generally have a lot of fun on a loose show as summer approaches.

And at the end of the episode (after the rock and roll), we throwback to Episode #53, where the “COUPLA BUCKS” story originates!

Episode #152 – Sid The Kid Catfishes Smashville

Back to back champs in Steel Town, an incredible feat to say the least in the Cap Era, but the Pittsburgh Penguins did it!

Ryan, Dave and P Mac gather at Dave’s apartment this week after watching game 6 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final. The Penguins go back to back for the first time in the NHL in twenty years. Sid wins another Conn Smythe trophy (back to back, notice a trend) and the Penguins do it with a ramshackle defence once again!

They discuss PK’s comments, tweets, antics before game 5 and just what type of affect he had on Crosby and the rest of the Penguins. Subban was shut down by the team when it came to media availability immediately following Game 5, so perhaps this was a problem behind the scenes.

They also discuss Brian Burke’s interesting comments about the Calgary Flames’ desires for a new downtown rink and the backlash from City Hall and the Mayor of Calgary.

They go on to discuss the failed Abbotsford Heat, another hockey project paid for with public money and Dave suggests that maybe, just maybe, Sidney Crosby is one of the top three players of all time!

Episode #151 – Mouthwash & Catfish

PK’s got mouthwash for Sid the kid and the Nashville Predators fans are the stars of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final

A FULL BENCH is on the podcast this week. They’re discussing the Sidney Crosby/PK Subban bad breath nonsense and Dave gives his opinion on PK’s gift bag of dental hygiene products for Sid before game 4. Is it wise to give the Penguins’ bulletin board material? Or did the end result of game 4 suggest that PK can get away with it and not affect the Predators?

They also discuss the rumours of Alex Ovechkin being traded, possibly to Calgary and which teams will stomach some bad contracts in exchange for draft picks.

They talk about the Vancouver Canucks getting Columbus’ 55th overall pick in exchange for hiring John Tortorella, discuss who will be their goalie(s) next season and if… or when Thatcher Demko makes his NHL debut during the 2017/18 Canucks season.

Finally, the gang jokes about Kevin Weekes time in Vancouver, discuss the possibilities of trading Chris Tanev and maybe picking up a bad contract of their own!
